    Menubar won't show in Audacity

    Audacity doesn't have a menu bar anymore!
    It doesn't even have that narrow space where a menu bar would be!

    My problem doesn't have anything to do with Gnome's menubars as far as I can tell, but I even tried removing and reinstalling Audacity.

    I even used --purge!

    Anyone know how to fix this?
    If something is not broken, fix it! Modfy every bit of it you can! Break it! This is how improvement and real education happens.

    I had the same problem. I found that if I change the theme and then change it back...then the menu shows up. Weird.

    This is quite annoying! Can't do anything with it! Changing themes didn't work for me.

    I've found that this isn't a permanent fix. Leave Audacity open while you click on different themes and see what happens. This appears to only be an Audacity issue thus far.

    I have one "workaround" thats workin for me, but it's not something everyone will want to do. I have "Ubuntu Netbook Edition" installed on my desktop. When I log on to that, the global menu shows audacitys menu. Like I said, not for everyone, and definately not a fix, but at least I can use audacity again until its fixed.

    Re: Menubar won't show in Audacity

    could this be related to the use of the globalmenu? Who of you have/had installed unity or just the globalmenu? I had in any case.

    I have the problem too, and the problem was mentionned on this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10005355

    audacity and golly both work without problems from the live CD, but they don't work on my installation. I removed all the packages with "netbook" or "unity" in it, and still it doesn't work. Could someone try to pruge them instead of removing?

    Re: Menubar won't show in Audacity

    I found a bug for it on launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...tk/+bug/660314

    And the sollution is to execute
    Code:
    export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0
    audacity
    note, this only works temporarilly, if the terminal is closed and you want to execute audacity, its w/o menu's.

    To make this a permanent hack: do the following:
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/bin/audacity /usr/bin/prog-audacity
    gksudo gedit /usr/bin/audacity
    in gedit, type the text
    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    
    
    export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0
    prog-audacity
    save it and execute
    Code:
    sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/audacity
    this should do it.

    Thanks for this, worked like a charm!
